BERKELEY COLLEGE SCHOOL OF HEALTH STUDIES PINS GRADUATES
The Berkeley College School of Health Studies recently conducted its first pinning ceremony to honor 56 graduates entering the fields of nursing, patient care technology, surgical processing and surgical technology.
Sheila Dynan, DMH, Berkeley College Dean, School of Health Studies, addressed the graduates, family and friends who gathered for the celebration, held in the Auditorium and Cafeteria of Passaic Valley Regional High School in Little Falls, NJ. She commented that graduates entering the health care field now begin their careers at a time when current and future opportunities are expanding faster than ever before.
“We face an incredible burgeoning of need for health care services, due largely to the baby boomer generation, which only now has begun to reach age 65 and older,” said Dr. Dynan. “This, coupled with extraordinary advances in scientific and medical research, technology, information and communication systems, creates the potential for each of us to see and experience improvements in healthcare that we never thought possible. You begin your careers at a time when current and future opportunities are expanding faster than ever before.”
